One of Nike’s cult followed runners from the turn of the new century makes a hybrid return next year. Here’s an exclusive first look at the Nike Kukini Free.
Previewed in three Summer 2012 colorways:
– Sport Red/White/Varsity Royal
Nike Kukini Free takes the slip-on webbed upper of the original Nike Air Kukini (named after an elite class of swift running Hawaiian foot messengers) and stacks it on top of a FREE segmented bottom. The cool visual look of the web cage wrapping down to the midsole isn’t translated on this new creation but the pairing of Nike Free and the Kukini seems like a well made match.
Launching in 2012, the Nike Kukini Free comes with a $95 price point.
